The FREE, yearly, Muse Online Writing Conference is now taking bookings.
Below is the link to the Muse page that lists the workshops, pitch sessions, agents, publishers and chat sessions being offered throughout the week of October 3rd - 9th. http://themuseonlinewritersconference.com/joom/index.php?option=com...This is my fifth year of offering a fast assessment of hundreds of first pages. I hardly have time to breath for the whole week. However, meeting new writers and helping them on their way is always a thrill for me.* Will it HOOK an editor's interest. * Does it include a WOW factor* Is it tight and terrific - no waffles ?And many other workshops offer a variety of terrific writing guidance and publisher's advice + a chance to pitch your story to a publisher. The FREE Muse Online Conference is a once a year chance to find new contacts, network with other writers, and pick the brains of the experts.
A slam dunk - right?
Vanessa, congratulations on your new book, "Friday Lunch." What an intriguing title. These women are worth a serious look.
Congratulations April Nicole for having your empowering story completed.
As for Self Publishing I will answer you and Dawn Odel with the same words:
Never attempt to self publish without first thoroughly researching the many aspects of it before you begin.
A successful self-publisher needs lots of time, money, boundeless energy to sell and promote their book, + the knowledge of how to go about both the publishing part and then the promotion that leads to sales.
Join a writing list where some of the members are self published and pick their brains. Pay to have your book properly edited. This is the best investment you will ever make. Discover how to dodge the many scam artists who just want your money. How to set up a book ( or pay someone else) for Kindle and other e-readers. The right book size, layout and paper to use. An artist to do your cover.
Learn the art of writing Press Releases, teeing up Virtual Book Tours and real time signings at bookstores and elsewhere, The right way to contact newspapers, TV and radio. Spend time on social networks promoting your book. Find book reviewers. A website or blog that tells about your book's progress, shows a book trailer, a sample chapter and the great cover art - not to mention where people can buy it.
3x elements bring success:
#1 - A well written and terrific story - professionally edited.
#2 - The ability to spend the necessary time, money and energy.
#3 - Detailed research that ensues you really know what you are doing.
